Mr. Cassler, Auto Body Repair instructor 
Instructor – Mr. Todd Cassler

In high school, I attended the Berks Career & Technology Center for auto mechanics. The basic skills I learned there started my automotive career. After high school, I joined the United States Air Force, where I painted F-15 fighter aircraft.

When I returned to Pennsylvania, I worked as a painter and welder at several local shops. In 2003 my creative desire took over and I opened my own custom auto body shop in Muhlenberg Township.
